Directions

Day 1: Add enough water to the beans to cover them by 3 or 4 inches, and soak overnight in the refrigerator.
As the beans absorb the water, they will more than double in volume.
Day 2: Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl.
Place all of the dressing ingredients, except the mayonnaise, in a blender and add 1 tablespoon of the seasoning mix.
Puree until smooth and creamy.
Add the mayonnaise, stir to blend thoroughly, and set aside.
Drain the white beans.
Place a heavy 5 quart pot, preferably nonstick, over high heat and add the chicken stock, the remaining seasoning mix, and the drained white beans.
Cook until the beans are tender and the liquid is thick and creamy looking, about 40 to 45 minutes.
If the level of the liquid seems low during the cooking time, add water 1 cup at a time.
Drain (but do not rinse), and set the beans aside to cool.
When the beans are cool, place them in a large bowl, add all the vegetables, and toss until evenly mixed.
Add the dressing and fold gently until evenly distributed.
